Find it hard to believe the light pressure I was applying and have applied to the barrel since flexes the action enough to effect the cylinder interface - but with the leverage maybe that is the case.
But as the guys say if the barrel isn't pressurised unless firing it has to be the cylinder transfer port area at fault- the rifle obviously wasn't cocked etc while I was doing the moderator swap etc.
